SD card corrupt

Hi all...I had a Fascinate with the standard 16G SD card.  I moved the data off the card to a computer, and replaced the 16G with a 32G card.

 

I moved all the data back to the card, and everything seemed fine.  I had a bunch of vacation pics stored under the DCIM directory, along with a number of pictures taken with the phone.

 

Right away, pictures started to disappear.  I reloaded them via USB, and assumed it was just one of those things. 

 

I took pictures at an event, came back, and all the pictures were gone.  A bunch of files showed up in the LOST.DIR file.

 

A bit irked, I reformated the card via the phone.  Loaded some pictures on the phone in a separate subdirectiry.  The next few days I started losing pictures again.    After a number of reformats, I sent the card back thinking it was defective.

 

I received a new card (both cards major brands purchased directly from Amazon), formatted it, and used it just for picture-taking with the phone.  Seemed to work, but I got up the next day, and the phone said there was no SD-card mounted, and it should be re-formatted.  I did so, and sometimes loading a few test pics, and sometimes just taking test pics with the camera.  Each time I started losing pics, and seeing files appear in the LOST.DIR. 

 

Is there anything special about using the 32G card in the Fascinate?  I thought I had maybe a misbehaving application, but I've been careful to use only stock Fascinate apps.

 

thanks for any suggestions!

Maybe you just got a bad card? What brand card was it?

I dont think it is a bad SD card.  I had a PNY card in it for a month, and it kept getting corrupted.  I exchanged it last month for a Sandisk, and the problem remains.

 

The phone the SD card is bad again last night.  The only option I had was to reformat the thing.
